Rune: The Most Versatile Wedding Band Ever Made, Launching on Kickstarter

Rune Labs is launching a Kickstarter campaign for RUNE bands, wedding bands created with a newly invented material called EPU. Using novel manufacturing methods called ‘digital light synthesis’, Rune bands are literally made by combining light and air. This allows for wedding bands that are flexible, but also exceptionally durable – while retaining the capability for dimensional open-air designs that keep the finger feeling cool and comfortable.

I was tired of the pruning and irritation, Silicone bands feel cheap and rubbery – just generally hot and uncomfortable. I also don’t feel comfortable wearing a metal ring when I’m being active, as they are bulky and have a risk of injury. My wife is a nurse and practices yoga, so she was in the same boat. In our never-ending quest for the perfect ring, I found out about this completely new material – and that started a 2-year development period that eventually became Rune.

Manufactured in the USA, Rune is made with EPU – a newly created material. Its combination of tear strength, energy return, and elongation makes EPU perfect for cushioning, impact absorption, and comfort. EPU is certified biocompatible and produces less waste than comparable silicone manufacturing.

Rune Labs is taking advantage of a brand-new kind of manufacturing process called digital light synthesis, as pioneered by additive manufacturing giant Carbon. The growth process allows for endless possibilities in design and dimension. When combined with the high durability of EPU, the rings can be made with large openings, ensuring to avoid the moisture pitfalls of silicone bands. Another benefit of precision manufacturing is that they can be made in half sizes, unlike almost all major silicone bands on the market.

We call it ‘the band that breathes. You can immediately tell the difference when it’s on your finger.

Launching July 14th on Kickstarter, John Wells and Rune Labs are looking to raise a portion of the funds necessary for a large-scale production run. They will be available for pre-order starting at the early bird price of $59.

Come into the beautiful world of Rune Bands.
